Comment:
I take guaifenesin as part of the guaifenesin protocal for Fibromyalgia. It has been almost a complete salvation of allowing my to still function at a full time job and wean off most of the other prescribed meds I was on. I know that Fibro is not what guai is designed for, but when used in conjunction with the Protocol, it has been a wonderful tool.

Comment:
I have bronchiectasis. Guaifenesin has helped a lot over the years (over 20). It thins the mucus and enables me to get it up and out which is critical in order to prevent infections of the lungs from occurring.

I have had seasonal sinus infections for many years and this year was diagnosed with Asthma,had trouble breathing with the sinus infection and found this to work so well in helping me breath easier and keeping the nose and chest from feeling so tight and congested I would recommend it to anyone looking for relief...it works.
